're moving to where they can thrive. and this benefits every american. we look at energy development and we talk about that at the national level of how it can create prosperity for our country if we open it up. we don't have to guess at whether or not it works. i mean, we can look at north dakota, you can look at pennsylvania. states that have gone around the federal rules and figured out how to develop their own energy are creating jobs and tax revenue to their governments. they were able to lower their taxes, use the revenue to improve everything about their states. and here we make it political and partisan on whether or not our country can develop more and more energy. but at the state level it's just about what works. and all we have to do is look at what works. this is not rocket science. i came to washington as a novice in politics, believing in the power of ideas, seeing how ideas can revolutionize different industries, can create new products and services meeting the needs of customers everywhere. and that's what i hoped we could do here in washington. maybe naively i went to work
for the eloquence of the spoken words about the challenges that we face. hopefully we will turn that energy from occurring. i want to commend the president and vice president biden for working on this issue. there are obvious ones like getting assault weapons. and the question is, what will we do? secretary, thank you, and thank the president for supporting us. [applause] i want to recognize the council members that have joined us today. and the council member that within the last 24 hours, the chair of the education committee. both are experienced and are very committed to the district. thank you for being here. to the folks that have joined us, our deputy mayor that has a daunting responsibility of health and human services, and who has enormous experience working with children, especially early childhood. the deputy mayor for education, we appreciate you stepping up. our chair that leaves the child and family services committee. we got a glowing report just the other day with the progress we are making. it wasn't long ago that we had children in foster care in the city. the number is down to
washington. there is so much to be done on jobs, income, education, and energy. we are a week away from one of the worst tragedies in memory. so we have got work to do on gun safety. a host of other issues. these are all challenges we can meet. these are all colleges we have to meet, if we want our kids to grow up in america that is full of opportunity and possibility, as much opportunity and possibility that our parents and our grandparents left for us. but we are only going to be able to do it together. we are going to have to find some common ground. the challenge we have got right now is that the american people are a lot more sensible and a lot more thoughtful, and much more willing to compromise and give and sacrifice and act responsibly, than their elected representatives are. that is a problem. there is a mismatch between how everybody else is thinking about these problems, democrats and republicans up side of this town, and how folks are acting here. we have to get the aligned. and we only have 10 days to do that. i hope every member of congress is thinking about that. nobody can g
in the morning, i feel great! if you have back pain, toss and turn at night or wake up tired with no energy, the sleep number bed could be your solution. the sleep number bed's secret is it's air chambers which provide ideal support and put you in control of the firmness. and the bed is perfect for couples because each side adjusts independently to their unique sleep number. here's what clinical research has found: ® 93% of participants experienced back-pain relief. ® 90% reported reduced aches and pains. ® 87% fell asleep faster and enjoyed more deep sleep. for study summaries, call this number now. we'll include a free dvd and brochure about the sleep number bed including prices, and models plus a free $50 savings card. and how about this? steel springs can cause uncomfortable pressure points. but the sleep number bed contours to your body. imagine how good you'll feel when your muscles relax and you fall into a deep sleep! i'm not just a back surgeon, i'm also a back patient. i sleep on the sleep number bed myself and i highly recommend it to all of my patients. need another reason to
to be gone, we need the government to create the next energy industry. we will spend all this money on these renewable things. it will be great. we know how to do it, we have experts. then a disruptive market driven technology comes along that generates $2 natural gas makes all that stuff or basically puts it into the future and the money just went down the drain. a case study the way dwogovernm planning and infrastructure spending, you will get 10 cents of every dollar you spend, basically. that should be in a future book, shouldn't it, to show you the way? we have to learn it again and again. >> it should. as your kids get older and my kids are at that age, it should. as a you start to see some of the school's syllabus for business classes and marketing classes, what you will learn, joe, making a profit is the last thing any of these classes want to teach. >> it's a dirty business. >> there was a time 4 or 500 years ago a middleman marked something up, that was supposed to be a bad thing. supposed to have a zero-sum game between buyer and serier and i thought we all learned about
to you? we talked about it briefly the other day with you. >> it's where to be in energy. you know, natural gas -- one of the things about natural gas which i love is that everybody kind of -- you see them come on your show and elsewhere on cnbc and they talk about this great boom that's going on in shale drilling. and i'm on the other side at this point and this is a tremendous bust in shale drilling that's going on because the price will not allow the innovations to move forward at this point. there's no demand source that's coming back into the market. >> a little better. >> there's no transport demand session coming back. >> it's better than 180. it's not what's needed for a real excitement about the fuel which is $5, $6, $7. >> so should we have a national policy to try to use more of this national gas and pump prices up and get people to do that instead of focusing on solar and hoping we'll have sun? >> yeah. by the way, i think that we should be doing both. that's really -- i think we should be doing both. but in terms of natural gas in 2012, there's been failure after failu
's accommodative. energy prices and dependent reducing. look-term we get to the right place. but we've got to get a credible solution that has integrity. the more integrity the solution has, the more it addresses the long-term issues. the more cash will move out of investor portfolios and into markets. >> because looking at across this, as you say, valley, and abroad, there are people like mark fauber that think that assets will be marked down 50% based on what we already owe in terms of commitments to be made and entitlements in this country. so that what we've seen in other parts of the world is already going to happen here, that we can't really change our future. so you could make a -- you could make a decision as a wealth manage her to get defensive, not based on the fiscal cliff but based on the fiscal abyss. >> you could. for individuals, though, you asked the question earlier, andrew, what can you do? it's almost impossible for individual investors to market and be successful. so what do you do in an environment like this? every individual ought to have a plan. they ought to have a place t
: this follow-up -- if you are poor, you'd have to spend a lot of energy to get enough to beat. john, connecticut. good morning. caller: good morning. i was calling to mention low- quality food and the cost of health care, but you covered well. do you think it would be more beneficial if they start doing a local farming program where they could start growing vegetables? maybe have some land with tiles and chickens, and local people could work on the farming areas and return the food to the communities as opposed to being so reliant on high-salt diets, the foods we would coin as having a long shelf life, leaving it on the shelf for six months without going bad? has the government been able to look into those programs, considering the finances involved in the program as a whole? host: thank you. a related topic -- the availability of this fresh produce is a big distraction for many. guest: there are some programs that speak directly to the point, one our farms-to-school programs, directed to help know where food is coming from and getting fresher food into the schools. in addition, we
